Introduction

Greetings Summoners!

This is My Personal Guide to Lee Sin!
I have never looked at someone else's guide to play any champions before so this Guide may be Simular to a Different Guide. I Construct my Own Builds (apart from this one I had a little help from a friend ;P) and Play Style with all Champions in which I Play.

Never the Less these Builds have never failed me (Mainly the 2nd One) and hopefully will never fail you!

Note: This Guide is for Lane Lee Sin and may not work for Jungle Lee Sin.

Runes

Damage Dealer Build 1

Pros
- Early Game to Late Game Armor Penetration
(Helping with Dmg, Starting with around 21 Armor Penetration at Lvl 1)
- Armor For a Little Extra Sustainablity
(As Minions Hit Less and so do Physical Damage Champions)
- Cooldowns which help

Cons
- No Health Regen
(Could Replace the Quintessence Runes for Health Regen)
- Armor Runes may also not be needed
(Could Replace for Any Runes of your Choice that Benefits the Champion)


Defensive/Supportive Build 2 (My Personal Favourite)

Pros
- Nice Sustainablity in Lane due to the Health Regen
(The Health Regen you would get from a Rejuvenation Bead + More from Masteries)
- Early Game to Late Game Armor Penetration
(Helping with Dmg, Starting with around 21 Armor Penetration at Lvl 1)
- Armor For a Little Extra Sustainablity
(As Minions Hit Less and so do Physical Damage Champions)
- Magic Resist, for a little extra resistence against mages.
(And because it helps with the Passive)

Cons
- Not Much Cooldown Reduction
(You could replace the Magic Resist Runes)
- Health Regen Runes may not be Needed
(Could Replace for Armor Penetration Runes)
- Armor Runes may also not be needed
(Could Replace for Any Runes of your Choice that Benefits the Champion)

The Skills

Passive: this is an exellent passive providing you extra attack speed allowing you to get Energy and Regen hp from auto-attacks. (Innate): After Lee Sin uses an ability, his next 2 autoattacks within 3 seconds gain 50% attack speed and return 15 energy each.

Q: this is an exellent skill for closing the gap between you and the enemy. It can also be used to gank as well.
Sonic Wave - (Active): Lee Sin shoots a wave of sound in a line, dealing physical damage to the first enemy it encounters and revealing his enemies for 3 seconds. If Sonic Wave hits, Lee Sin can cast Resonating Strike within the next 3 seconds. Resonating Strike - (Active): Lee Sin dashes to the enemy revealed by Sonic Wave, dealing a base amount of damage plus 10% of their missing health as physical damage (Max: 400 damage vs. Monsters).

W: this skill is nice to jumping into a fight with an ally or comboing with your Q. Iron will is nice for Regeneration.
Safeguard - (Active): Lee Sin dashes towards a target ally unit, shielding them both from damage for the next 5 seconds. After using Safeguard, Lee Sin can cast Iron Will within the next 3 seconds.
Iron Will - (Active): For the next 5 seconds, Lee Sin gains bonus lifesteal, spell vamp, and armor.


E: these skills can slow the enemy along with revealing them, so exellent for stopping invisible Champions.
Tempest - (Active): Lee Sin smashes the ground dealing magic damage to all nearby enemies and revealing them for 4 seconds. If Tempest hits an enemy, Lee Sin can cast Cripple within the next 3 seconds.
Cripple - (Active): Lee Sin cripples all enemies revealed by Tempest reducing their movement and attack speed. The movement and attack speed recover gradually over 4 seconds.


R: this is skill provides nice dmg along with knocking up and away nearby champions in a line. (Active): Lee Sin performs a powerful roundhouse kick knocking his target back, dealing physical damage to the target and any enemies they collide with. Enemies the target collides with are briefly knocked into the air.

Situational Items

If you seem to be struggling or getting hit hard by specfic Champions try out these items:


Wit's End
Mages dealing nukes on you? Do not fear this is an item thats just for you! This item provides Attack Speed along with a nice amount of Magic Resist.


Quicksilver Sash
Struggling with CC? Well this is the item for you! With just a click you remove any CC on you! It's like eating Gangplank's Oranges as an item o.O

Gameplay

I start off with Doran's Blade. Once in Lane harass the enemy with Q whilst farming the minions with my auto attacks. Once I reach level 2 I get a rank in W and combo Q + W. In doing this I harass the enemy with Q whilst gaining my original positon back by using W on friendly Minion.

At level 3 I get a rank in my E. I use this to help me farm minions along with Combo'ing with my Partner. For example if my Partner decides to engage, them being a Melee Champion, I use my W to Dash onto my Ally, then use E on the enemy to slow them. If they manage to get out of my Partner's and my range, I use Q and dash onto the Enemy to Kill them.

By the time I have around 500 gold I tell my Partner I am going to recall for Avarice Blade. I buy my Avarice Blade and a few potions and a Sight Ward if I have money to spare.

~ Wards save lives ~

Once I return to lane, I ask if the partner wants to recall, if they do, play safely, whilst still getting as many minion kills as possible, if not continue the laning. Place the ward in a suitable location where ganks could occur.

~ If you happen to be in a Duo Lane against a Solo Lane either ask your partner to head into the Jungle or do it yourself, ensure that either YOU or your PARTNER can farm whilst being able to stop the enemy in the Solo Lane from farming. ~

Gank any lane that needs assistence by hiding in a brush, assuming they don't have wards then using Q twice to dash onto them, then slowing them with E.

In Team Fights
In Team Fights, try to focus any enemy that deems a threat to your team (Carries and enemy Assasins), use Q to close the gap and your E to slow them, then just damage them with your auto-attacks. If an enemy is near death and has a method of escape use your R on them.

If there are enemies chasing your Team's Carry, use your W to get to the Targetted Champion, then use your R at the enemy nearest to your team mate, try to angle it so that the enemy Champion flies into his allies. E could also be used if they are very close to your team mate to slow the enemy down.

By the time you have obtained your Frozen Mallet you consider what your team needs, more damage or someone who can take damage but tank just as well. I tend to go for my 2nd Build as to me it seems to work more effectively. This is due to the fact that I can engage teamfights as well as the Tank. My damage may be weaker compared to if I went full damage, but, it is still enough along with the ability of being able to tank the enemy if focused.
